Works for me, but not in the wiki (I can’t get colors there, too).
The wiki use MkII and you have to enable colors first.

I did enable colors, but don’t get any. Maybe the color switch is not in the MkII version.

Thank you for the hint, but I only need that one dropped cap. Even if the first line/sentence in small caps looks very classical, I don’t really like it.
I added your example to the wiki page:
